Building a Highway
Demonstrates major steps in the construction of a two-lane highway. Illustrates such processes as clearing, cutting, scraping, and leveling the roadbed; assembling materials; mixing and dumping the concrete; and smoothing and finishing the surface. Pictures the completed highway open to traffic. Emphasizes the necessary skills involved in providing well-built safe highways for automotive traffic.
Ken Smith sez: Lots of footage of big machines dumping concrete and ripping down trees for a better tomorrow.
Some good images of bulldozers tearing up land and overviews of highways, but they're short and unspectacular.
